Billikens Post Ninth Straight Win with 67-59 Victory at Dayton

Saint Louis senior forward Dwayne Evans scored 22 points and sophomore guard Austin McBroom added a career high 17 as the Billikens registered a 67-59 win at Dayton Saturday in Atlantic 10 Conference play. The win improves the Billikens to 15-2 overall and 2-0 in the A-10. It was SLU’s ninth victory in a row. Dayton dips to 12-4 and 0-1 in the league. SLU now has a 6-0 road record, the best undefeated road mark in the country. Evans was 9-of-11 (including one 3-pointer) and 3-of-3 from the free-throw line. He finished one rebound shy of a double-double with nine boards. McBroom continued his hot shooting from beyond the arc with a 3-of-6 performance from long range. He finished hitting 4-of-11 overall and 6-of-6 from the free-throw line to account for his 17 points. Jordair Jett, who was coming off a career-high 31 points against Rhode Island in SLU’s last outing, finished with 12 points and a team-leading five assists.
